Last week, we talkedalot about Evilot, a crafty new mashup of tower-based-defense and three-based-matching: guard your lanes with horrid beasties, and if you line up three in a row or a column, they become even beastlier! Well, the game’s out today for iPad, so, thanksalot, TriplePoint client Syrenaica! Today’s release puts the anti-heroic match-defense game-app on iPad, but Syrenaica promises it’s coming to “Android, PC, Mac, Ouya and Linux” in the coming months.
From the press release:
Accessible to even casual players, Evilot’s 50 levels are set up on a grid with the forces of Dolfus defending against baddies (err… goodies?), who race down lanes toward mountains of hard-earned treasure. Gameplay goes beyond the traditional “set it and forget it” tower defense mechanic, adding a puzzle-based unit upgrade system. Place three of the same units together in a column or row and they combine to create a more powerful, leveled-up unit. Keep units tightly packed for more powerful upgrades, or spread them out for a weaker, but wider defensive spread. It’s a compelling twist on tower defense that is easy to play, yet difficult to master.
You can try the first few levels for notalot. For free, in fact, right here.
